Beltran was hired by NY in November, but MLB's report into the Astros' trash-can-clobbering, sign-stealing operation revealed that Beltran played a part in it as a Houston player.

Cora subsequently managed the Red Sox to a World Series victory in 2018 and the team are subject to a separate Major League Baseball investigation that they used video replays to steal signs during that season.

Beltran was not punished as he was a player at the time but has now left the Mets before taking charge of a game.

Still, the move came as a surprise to Major League Baseball fans, and, of course, there were plenty of jokes about Beltran's undefeated record. The Mets organization and I mutually agreed to part ways, moving forward for the greater good with no further distractions. "This was not an easy decision". "As a veteran player on the team, I should've recognized the severity of the issue and truly regret the actions that were taken".

Beltran told the Mets it was best that he stepped down from his role as manager, according to Yahoo Sports. "I wish the entire organisation success in the future".

"We believe that Carlos was honest and forthcoming with us", Wilpon and Van Wagenen said in a statement. Beltran finished up his 20-season Major League Baseball career in 2017, walking away after winning the World Series with Houston.

The Mets announced Beltran's hiring on November 1.

Beltrán, a former all-star outfielder who retired after winning the 2017 World Series with the Astros, was mentioned in a statement by MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred on Monday as one of the players behind a scheme that used technology to steal signs during that season.

The 42-year-old was the only player named in MLB's investigation.

Both Wilpon and Van Wagenen emphasized that Beltran was not fired, but that both parties came to a mutual agreement that they should part ways.

As of Wednesday, the Mets continued to mull whether or not to move forward with Beltran as their manager and had not reached out to experienced skippers like Buck Showalter and Dusty Baker as potential replacements, Sherman adds.
